Ted Cruz says he’s hired lawyers to renounce Canadian citizenship

The junior senator from Texas is still a Canadian. But he’s working on it, eh?

Born in Alberta 43 years ago last Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz was unaware of his dual nationality until The Dallas Morning News explored the issue in August.

Since then, he said in a recent interview, “I have retained counsel that is preparing the paperwork to renounce the citizenship.”

He might as well. Don't you think?

This won't matter

You have to be born here. If you could run for president just by renouncing your foreign citizenship, then it would have happens many times. Hell, Arnold could do the same thing (god help us) since he is no longer governor of California and his movie career sucks now.

Here we go.

The GOP isn't going to let Rand take center stage without a fight.

Canadian? I thought Cruz was

Canadian? I thought Cruz was Mexican.

I told my lawyer I'm renouncing Ted Cruz.

What BS! Cruz was more than

What BS! Cruz was more than just born there. It is my understanding he went to school there 'til age of 7. Am I wrong on this? ALSO why is Cruz bothering to squelch Canadian citizenship. He is INELIGIBLE to run PERIOD...END OF STORY!

will be fun to watch all the

will be fun to watch all the GOP hypocrites as they complained about Barry, which they should have, but will support Cruz.

if Cruz runs for prez he's a traitor

Simple. He can't 'protect and defend' the Constitution if his first act to get to the top is to ignore its NBC rule.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Yup... And we'll know that Cruz is 'their' man...

Notice that Rand Paul was all over the news for a while, he did the filibuster, was doing interviews on MSM practically every day... Then Cruz starts doing the same, and the MSM was all over him, and Rand sort decided to take a step back, and then they sent the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man, excuse me I mean Chris Christie, after Paul to politically attack him.
And they are still pushing Cruz like he is the 'Tea Party'/libertarian/constitutional conservative GOP candidate.
Too bad the guy is most likely a phony, either that or he is that oblivious to what the constitution actually says, and should be nowhere near the Executive office.
We know Obama and the left knows he's not an NBC. In fact he may not even be a citizen at all.
Cruz, Rubio, Jindal, McCain, Santorum, Romney... ALL of these guys have issues with Natural Born Citizenship! The latter 3 are likely NBCs, but the others are definitely not, and the questions remain for all f them. So why is the GOP running all these guys who's NBCitizenship is in question, and they shunned the one guy who was definitely a loyal, constitutional conservative, NBC, Ron Paul?
The GOP, as you likely know, has been taken over a long time ago by New World Order Globalist Elites.
Remember that lady who went to the House floor saying evil Freemasons have taken control of the government... Yeah.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

I have already planned ahead.

I will NEVER support him for president.

And so it will be the "republicans" who will seal-the-deal.

The left have been hammering away (begging for debate) for decades. Now that "republicans" have been moving center, left, they will attempt to ignore the founding fathers, Vattel, and all that our Republic stands for. MSM, beck, fox, will ignore those and yield back to spewing names, ie: truther, birther, etc., sealing this nation's fate lock-step-in-line.

Senator Cruz was born December 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and thus automatically a Canadian citizen. Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, was born in 1939 in Matanzas, Cuba.

See “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the US Constitution for President and by the 12th Amendment for Vice President.] See: http://www.dailypaul.com/296489/natural-born-citizen-defined



After his student visa expired, Rafael Cruz obtained political asylum in the U.S. He then found work with the oil industry in Canada, where Ted Cruz was born. Rafael Bienvenido Cruz became a Canadian citizen while in Canada. While his son was serving as solicitor general of Texas in 2005, Rafael Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship and became and American citizen.
